Buying Lemonade and thinking that would get me past the guard to Saffron City.

I thought I was the only idiot that did that lol, I don't see why he couldn't just take the lemonade. But when I went to go get the water, it got me really pissed when he said that "I would share this with my other buddies" meaning he would have to get up and anyone could of went into Saffron city. What a lazy and poor bum >=[

Since Fire Red was my first Pokémon game, I didn't know much about the game. I was about 9 years old (I am 14 now) I defeated all legendaries without knowing I had to capture them...

August 17th, 2009, 01:15 AM
I always get Dratini, and i bought it a thousand times at teh game corner (teh earliest way to get it) and on one game it costs around double then the other one, so i sold all my things for the coins, got like 5000, and then realised it was only around 2000, and for a while I was poor and sold all my valuable stuff

LeafGreen was my first pokemon game and I got it when I was 8, so it was pretty bad:

I thought the ghost Marowak was an impossible to catch legendary, my sister (who had the game briefly before me) named my rival Ash (though I told her 20 times his name is Gary), so on my way to the champion, Lance tells me ASH is the champion so I'm like "Ash, really?", when I get there, I find the Ash imposter named Gary. I really wanted to kick ash's butt that day though=/.....and also again with my sister owning the game for a short time, she got lost deep in Rock Tunnel, with no Flash HM -_-....so I'm wandering around for hours wondering were to go....sad when I finally realized I'll be stuck there forever, so I eventually wander out and find the Flash HM.

D-d-dat's all folks!

I once sat in school at the computer playing a leafgreen rom. (Our teacher didn't care, bahaha :D) And I saved just after defeating Brock. Then I continued playing, and playing, and playing, and eventually as I was cruising down cycling road my teacher got a phone call, and I guess that whatsisface, who is with the schoolboard and is visiting the school, was on his way down from the office to check up on us. Now, he acually did care that we all did our work, so the teacher was like BEGIN WORKING NOW!!! I simply went and exited the rom without saving.:pink_disbelief:

Leafgreen was my second main series game, and it took a few seconds to get used to pressing Start instead of Y.

Edit: Oh, and using nothing but my Charizard.

Ummm...playing it? They're seriously my least favorite main game. They're not bad, they're just...I don't know. They're not terrible games, though.

Well, I recently played through my friend's FireRed as my own is lost (together with my Ruby and Sapphire games, and my 1st Emerald was stolen - dang thieves! I had like 20 Lv.100s on that game. Including Annoyissey.)

As he wanted Suicune, I had no choice but to choose Charmander for a starter. Pewter Gym went just fine as Charmander learns Metal Claw. But I tried and couldn't beat it yet, so I evolved it into a Charmeleon. When I did that, it went just fine. And then I went to the Cerulean Gym. GOD! It was a nightmare. I had to train my Charmeleon to lv.34. YES, THIRTY-FRIGGING-FOUR to beat that stupid Starmie!!!!

So I ended up having a Lv.40 Charizard when I was at the SS.Anne. X_X X_X X_X

And a Lv.70 Charizard when I came to the Elite Four. I almost only used Charizard for the E4. :S

September 29th, 2009, 11:28 PM
Well, I like Dragonite, so I sold nearly all my stuff for 2800 coins for Dratini. my lowest level in the team then was 28. it turned out to be lv18 and i never used it since.

OKay, I laughed so hard at this. You, hunted for a wild charmander-squirtle? okay...Mine would be...vowing to never play again after trying to get through victory road and then picking it up 2 minutes after and start to play again. It was just funny. :)

Wasting time trying to get past the guard in Saffron, and sadly the same thing happened in rby (not sure if it was any different there though).

Oh, and catching Moltres with a masterball was pretty stupid for me since I don't have much problems using Ultra balls on it.

Losing it (I recently received word that it had been found, but in the end it turned out to be someone else's Blue Rescue Team) and only paying attention to my Venesaur on my first file of the game. It was level 100 and I still couldn't beat the elite four the second time through. Also, naming my Bulbasaur 'LeafGreen'. Plus, I was training something up when I encountered a shiny Vulpix. I went straight to my bag... but I forgot to buy any pokeballs XD

- Selling my Masterball (for what I thought was 9999999 bucks), only to find out five minutes later that you get ZERO money from selling it.

- Looking for a Magmar, in FireRed! Wasted 2 hours of my life.

- Used my last Pokeball to catch a Zubat (I got annoyed by them so I decided to enslave them!) and my next encounter was a SHINY Golbat. Life just hurts.

Having trouble with national dex.
Story:
I new game my leafgreen and defeat E4, then restart the game, continue, and "now, what must I do?", "OH, sevii island" (searching sapphire and ruby mission), "how do I go there?", "OH, National Dex!", "WHAT? My pokedex still the old pokedex?", "how do I upgrade my pokedex?" and then I talk to Prof. Oak and nothing happened. "Last time I played it, the pokedex automatically upgraded...". So, I travel the region, waste many precious time, next day I ask to my friend, he said "You must caught at least 60 pokemon", (I just have 26 pokemon, too lazy), then I caught as many as possible, include useless pokemon, then went to sevii island!

When I first played through the game, I transfered all my good pokemon over to Diamond. Only to realize I had no pokeballs left and nothing to fight trainers to earn pokedollars to buy pokeballs. So I couldn't catch a bunch of things I still needed for my pokedex in Diamond. I learned from my mistake the next time I played through at least :D

I was getting mad, so I threw it into a PC. After the Elite Four, I raised it one level, and it evolved.

I'm still mad about that. Took me forever...
